Asked by Roman Polach on 2012-10-10

After upgrade to Pinta 1.4, pinta does not even start.
And it shows no error message.
I have also installed Gtk# from

If you try to launch Pinta from the command line, do you get any output?

Also, check what files are under the Pinta directory (probably C:/Program Files/Pinta), just in case the installer somehow messed something up.

Output is none. It shows new command prompt immediately.

Content of Pinta directory c:\Program Files (x86)\Pinta is following:
 131˙584 ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll
 228˙864 Mono.Addins.dll
 199˙680 Mono.Addins.Gui.dll
 127˙488 Mono.Addins.Setup.dll

It doesn't look like any files are missing.

I'm not sure what could be going on, but it wouldn't hurt to try uninstalling and then reinstalling GTK# and Pinta.

Thanks, it helps.
I saw that both Gtk# 2.12.9 and 2.12.10 was installed, so I uninstalled
them both and installed only Gtk# 2.12.9 again... and it is working now.
